  • (Richter Belmont arrives in Dracula's chamber)
    Richter Belmont: Die monster! You don't belong in this world!
    Dracula: It was not by my hand that I am once again given flesh. I was called here by humans who wish to pay me tribute.
    Richter Belmont: Tribute!?! You steal men's souls and make them your slaves!
    Dracula: Perhaps the same could be said of all religions...
    Richter Belmont: Your words are as empty as your soul! Mankind ill needs a savior such as you!
    Dracula: What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets! But enough talk... Have at you!

  • (Alucard is met by Death)
    Death: Ah, Alucard. What is your business here?
    Alucard: I've come to put an end to this.
    Death: Still befriending mortals... I'll not ask you to return to our side, but I demand you cease your attack.
    Alucard: I will not.
    Death: You shall regret those words. We will meet again. (Death steals Alucard's equipment and vanishes)

  • (In his dreams, Alucard sees his mother Lisa about to be burned on a cross)
    Alucard: Mother!
    Lisa: That voice! Alucard, it's you!
    Alucard: I'm coming Mother! I'll save you!!
    Lisa: No Alucard! Don't come here!
    Alucard: But Mother!
    Lisa: It's all right! If my death can save others, I gladly surrender my life.
    Alucard: Mother! No!...Please! No!...
    Lisa: Yes Alucard! Watch me die and remember always my last words to you...
    Alucard: Yes Mother...
    Lisa: You must despise humans. They are to be your prey.
    Alucard: What?!...
    Lisa: Better for them to die than to let them compound their sins. Begin by slaying that one over there.
    Alucard: No...it wasn't like this...
    Lisa: What's wrong? Alucard?
    Alucard: My mother never said such a thing...
    Lisa: What do you mean!? Kill them and bring them happiness!
    Alucard: No! You're not my mother! What kind of demon are you!?
    ("Lisa" turns into a Succubus)
    Succubus: (laughing) You broke free of my spell. I like that.
    Alucard: Demon, death is too good for you!
    Succubus: Come here little boy and show me what you've got.

  • (After defeating the Succubus)
    Succubus: Darkling! I smell your blood. You're a vampire...Could it be...
    Alucard: .........
    Succubus: That strength, that beauty...You're the son of Lord Dracula.
    Alucard: Death in the dream world will send your soul wandering for all eternity, Demon.
    Succubus: No wait, I beg of you! (the Succubus screams as the dream fades to white)

  • (Alucard and Dracula meet face-to-face)
    Alucard: Father...
    Dracula: Well met, my son! It's been a long time.
    Alucard: I was hoping we would not see each other again. I can't allow you to leave here, father.
    Dracula: You have ever been the ally of humans. Have you forgotten what they did to your mother?
    Alucard: Think you I would forget such a thing? No! But neither do I seek revenge against them.
    Dracula: Still uttering the same nonsense. No matter. Now is the time to put aside your weak human side, and join me in remaking this world!
    Alucard: Dracula, in the name of my mother, I will defeat you again!
    Dracula: (appearing in what appears to be a demonic throne) Behold my true form and despair!

  • (After defeating Dracula)
    Alucard: Go back whence you came! Trouble the soul of my Mother no more!
    Dracula: How? How is it that I have been so defeated?
    Alucard: You have been doomed ever since you lost the ability to love.
    Dracula: Ah...sarcasm. "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the world, and loses his own soul?" Matthew 16:26, I believe.
    Alucard: .......
    Dracula: Tell me...What...What were Lisa's last words?
    Alucard: She said "Do not hate humans. If you cannot live with them, then at least do them no harm. For theirs is already a hard lot". She also said to tell you that she would love you for all of eternity...
    Dracula: Lisa, forgive me. Farewell my son...

  • (Alucard arrives to see Richter and Maria standing outside)
    Alucard: So you've made it.
    Maria Renard: Alucard. I'm glad your all right.
    Richter Belmont: I'm sorry. 'Tis my fault that you had to fight your own father.
    Alucard: Fear not. I had my own reasons for destroying him.
    Richter Belmont: It must have been painful for you.
    Alucard: Indeed. But you must always remember that the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
    Richter: I understand.
    Maria Renard: Alucard, what will you do now?
    Alucard: The blood that flows through my veins is cursed. 'Twould be best if I were to disappear forever.
    Maria Renard: I see.
    Alucard: Farewell then. We'll not meet again. (Alucard walks away)
    Maria Renard: Alucard...
    Richter Belmont: Don't you want to go after him, Maria?

Ending 1

Maria Renard: I'm sorry. I can't let him disappear from my life.
Richter Belmont: It's alright. Go after him. Perhaps you can save his haunted soul.
Maria Renard: Thank you, Richter. Fare thee well.
Richter Belmont: And yourself dear lady. (Maria runs off after Alucard)

Ending 2

Maria Renard: No, maybe it is best this way. And some day perhaps, we will meet again. And on that day...
Richter Belmont: ...I see.
Maria Renard: Now let's go. Everyone's waiting for us.
Richter Belmont: Yes. Let's get out of here.


  • (When attempting to play the Playstation disc in a CD player)
    Alucard: As you can see, this is a Playstation black disc. Cut #1 contains computer data, so please don't play it. But you probably won't listen to me anyway, will you?
    (The disc then proceeds to play a hidden music track)

  • (Richter Belmont arrives in Dracula's chamber)
    Richter: Dracula. Die now, and leave this world! You'll never belong here!
    Dracula: Oh, but this world invited me. Your own kind called me forth with praise and tribute.
    Richter: Tribute? You're a thief. You steal men's souls, their freedom...
    Dracula: Freedom is always sacrificed to faith, good hunter. Or are you truly here by choice?
    Richter: All I'm here for is you. To hell with your heresy! You're nothing but a blight on mankind.
    Dracula: Ha! Mankind. A cesspit of hatred and lies. Fight for them, then, and die for their sins!

  • (Alucard is met by Death)
    Death: Ah, Alucard. What is your business here?
    Alucard: I've come to put an end to this.
    Death: Ever the insolent boy... but there'll no games here. If you will not behave, begone.
    Alucard: I will do neither. Step aside, old man.
    Death: Ha! Such arrogance. Very well... but I shall see you very soon (Death steals Alucard's equipment and vanishes)

  • (Alucard and Dracula meet face-to-face)
    Alucard: Father...
    Dracula: Well met, my son! It's been a long time.
    Alucard: Not nearly long enough. I can't allow you to leave here, Father.
    Dracula: Do you still side with humanity? Have you forgotten what they did to your mother?
    Alucard: You think I would forget such a...! No. But neither do I seek revenge against them.
    Dracula: Enough of your nonsense! Away with your humanity! Stand with me as Prince of all the world!
    Alucard: You will never touch this world again. In Mother's name, I swear it!

  • (After defeating Dracula)
    Alucard: Go back to the abyss! Trouble the soul of my mother no more!
    Dracula: H-How?! How could I have lost?!
    Alucard: You lost your heart. Your soul. You'll never win without them.
    Dracula: Ah, how poetic. So I tragically sacrificed all I held dear in a search for power, did I?
    Alucard: ...Did you not?
    Dracula: ...Hmph. Tell me. What... What were Lisa's last words?
    Alucard: She said, "Do not hate humans. If you cannot live with them, then at least do them no harm, for theirs is already a hard lot." ...She also said that she would love you. For eternity.
    Dracula: Lisa, forgive me... Farewell, my son...

  • (Alucard arrives to see Richter and Maria standing outside)
    Alucard: So you made it.
    Maria: Alucard! You're all right!
    Richter: So you had to fight your own father? It's my fault. If I hadn't been so weak, we wouldn't be here.
    Alucard: Not so. I had my own reason to face him.
    Richter: Still... It couldn't have been easy.
    Alucard: It wasn't... But remember "The only thing necessary for evil to triumph..."
    Richter: ...is for good men to do nothing.
    Maria: So, what now, Alucard?
    Alucard: The blood in my veins is cursed. It's best for the world if I disappear, now and forever.
    Maria: ........ ...I see...
    Alucard: Farewell, then. We'll not meet again.
    Maria: ............ Alucard...
    Richter: Well, are you going after him, or not?
    Maria: ........ .... I'm sorry. I have to follow him. I can't just...
    Richter: It's all right! Hurry up and catch him. If anyone can save him, you can.
    Maria: Thank you, Richter. For everything.
    Richter: Thank you... Maria.
